Worship

Worship is central to our existence as a parish and anchors our relationship with God and each other.

Worship at St. Mark’s is inter-generational, involving people of all ages, and reflects a 2000 year-old tradition of Christian liturgy that has continually changed and developed, incorporating diverse styles of music, prayers, and artistic expressions. At St. Mark’s we find our identity in our worship, education, and service.

St. Mark’s offers four Sunday morning opportunities for worship September-June:

  • At 8:00 AM, the service is a Rite I Eucharist with music offered by a variety of instrumentalists and a closing hymn. This service is quiet and contemplative. Following this service is a brief coffee ‘moment’ in the narthex, and an adult education offering in Mahon Hall.
  • The 9:15 AM service is a Rite II Eucharist, with musical leadership provided by the Chorister and Treble (children and youth) choirs, and organ-led hymns throughout the service. Very young children can attend Lamb’s Chapel or Children’s Worship during this time, and then join their families at communion. Education for children, youth and adults follows this service from 10:15 to 11:15.
  • At 10:30 AM, is a Rite II choral Eucharist, with traditional music throughout. Musical leadership comes from the Adult Choir and guest instrumentalists. A coffee hour in Mahon Hall follows the service, to offer a time of fellowship.
  • The 1:00 PM services a Rite II Eucharist in Spanish–“misa en Espanol” with music accompanied by piano and guitar. A bilingual Spanish/English bulletin enables both Spanish and English speakers to participate fully in worship. As with other worship services at St. Mark’s, the gathering is multi-generational and multi-cultural.
